All healthcare support workers and adult social care workers are trained to prioritise the best interests of individuals at risk who are in their care. In order to encourage the individual's independence so that they can make and communicate their own decisions, it’s vital that workers know how to draw up a supportive care plan.
Health and social care workers often have the responsibility of devising a care plan for individual's who need support. This method of planning allows you to consider more than a person’s immediate needs; it involves every aspect of their circumstances, personality and life context.
This course covers the entire process from assessment to drawing up a comprehensive, effective care plan for an adult at risk in your care. You will learn how to apply recognised standards, guidance and recommendations to fulfil your role with good practice.
